When they added the Galaxy-X I almost lost it I will admit.

The problem with MT's is that the scope of the Cash Shop always gets too large. The money provided from MT's becomes so attractive that a developer focuses on MT Content over non-MT Content. A race begins to get everything impulse buyers want into an (usually F2P) MMO. Much PR is spun about 'new revenue streams' to make us all nod, our theoretically capitalist noggins like bobble-heads. They appeal emotionally with "this makes developing more content financially feasible."

Bottom line MT's focus the MM) on a Profit Motive. There is nothing wrong with Profit until it becomes more important than customer service. A company that put Profit first puts its customer last imho. Cryptic is just showing their true colors. They made STO to make money at the core. They purchased the IP to draw in a player base quickly. Now they are going to milk all of us for every penny they can. Try to admit that and not defend MT's as a bold new revolution in MMO's please folks.
I second this... for cyriptic

I will wait for that version. It has been seen in space dock. I saw it myslef was shock it was the "The Enterprise-B Excelsior" version. No info has been given out on it. It should be a T5 ship. Go watch DS9: Homefront. It fought the Defient to standstill.

It IS a T5 ship. It is called "Generations" variant, will be released on August 26th and you can obtain it via C-Store for Cryptic Points. It will look like the one you can see on the drydocks from time to time.

The other variant, "Search for Spock", will be a T3 ship and you can get it spending energy credits ingame. This ship will be available slightly sooner on August 23rd. It will look like the regular Excelsior you know from the classic movies or some TNG/DS9 episodes.

The T5 variant can be customized with using parts of the T3 varaint, so you can mix both Excelsiors if you want to.
